The news that NORTEC intends to sell two properties used for business incubators is disturbing.
People worked for years to establish these incubators, with the help of taxpayer funds. They also worked hard to acquire properties that would keep the incubators on a sound footing.
And NORTEC, which inherited the properties, now wants to sell them off?
The ‘quantum leap’ of the industry that NORTEC refers to doesn’t require making obviously poor business decisions like selling these properties. They are strong assets for the community.
If sold, they will be lost forever, and the aspiring small-business people of the area will lose to NORTEC’s desire for a questionable short-term gain.
